Points of View

March 2024- Kings College Hospital- Dental Health Visit

Just to say very many thanks to all at Downderry for your help with the dental visit. I saw the team and they were full of praise for the support they received - and how great the children were.


The results of this programme should be out this time next year and will be used to help plan  local and national treatment policy.


Many thanks again - your help is very much appreciated

It is always a pleasure to visit your lovely school. I am fortunate and privileged in my role to visit many schools in many areas. Your school is always so impressive, the conduct of the pupils is outstanding.

Parent Workshop, Phonics 2024

"Thank you so much for organising a parent workshop on Phonics this week. I would like to sincerely thank Miss Bryan for the fun and engaging workshop and for sharing lots of wonderful tips about how we can support our children at home.


As non-native English speakers I have found it extremely helpful and I feel more confident now supporting my child at home with regards to phonics.


We feel very lucky to have a teacher with such enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for education."

Bird Box Project 2020


"I’ve been following your school’s blue tit box from afar - during lockdown. It has been fascinating - a joy and a privilege to be able to see into their world.  To have four healthy chicks fledge this morning - is the end of the story.  So - thank you."

Jason & Annabelle, London Fire Brigade

As part of our partnership with local universities, Downderry hosted a professional development day,  to support post graduate students at Greenwich University:


‘Downderry was amazing. The children were so polite and lovely and that can only come from having a strong and consistent staff team, which leads me to believe that they support each other well and leadership really care about their staff. I would like to work in a school like that.’


Thank you for the on-going support of the partnership.
